澳大利亚证券交易所区块链结算系统推迟上线

9月4日,澳大利亚证券交易所(ASX)宣布,新区块链结算系统发布时间延迟至2021年第二季度。新系统将取代已延用数十年的CHESS清算和结算系统。

根据ASX新报告,此举是各方对4月新系统发布咨询文件的反馈结果。当时,ASX预计新的区块链系统将在2020年底上线。

ASX表示收到了来自清算和结算参与者、支付提供商和市场运营商等利益相关方的41份书面意见书。这当中的一些人质疑2020年末是否可以实现该目标。

根据各利益方反映,ASX决定将区块链系统上线时间推迟到2021年3月或4月。同时,新系统在正式实施之前,用户开发测试期将延长六个月,而与之前相比,全行业范围测试会推迟六个月再开始。

ASX表示:

在回复中大家有一个共同的观点,即原计划在太短的时间内同时推出过多的新功能。有人认为,这将增加项目运行阶段和上线时间内的复杂性和风险。

因此,ASX决定推迟发布原计划中的区块链系统七个功能,例如外币结算和显示账户余额信息的报告功能。ASX表示,区块链系统推出时用户可以使用哪些功能,还将取决于潜在风险和监管许可。

自2015年以来,ASX一直在探索如何利用分布式账本技术,并在去年宣布将推出基于区块链的结算系统,以降低运营成本,提高交易效率。

ASX执行董事兼首席执行官多米尼克·史蒂文斯(Dominic Stevens)曾表示,新系统一旦实施,将能够节省多达230亿美元成本。

The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) has pushed back the launch of a blockchain replacement for the decades-old CHESS clearing and settlement system until the second quarter of 2021.

The ASX published a new report on Tuesday in response to public feedback on a consultation paper it published in April for the new system. The company expected at the time the new system would go live by the end of 2020.

The exchange said it had received 41 written submissions from various stakeholders in the process, such as clearing and settlement participants, payment providers and market operators.

Based on the responses, the ASX decided to postpone the targeted go-live time to March or April 2021. It will also extend a user development testing period and an industry-wide testing phase for another six months each prior to the official implementation.

The reason for the delay was cited as concerns raised by respondents over "whether the proposed implementation window of Q4 2020 to Q1 2021 was achievable given the significance of the technology change and the range of new scope being introduced."

The ASX went on to explain that "there was a common view in responses that too much new functionality was being proposed to be implemented in too short a timeframe," adding:

"It was argued that this would result in increased complexity and risk across project phases and in the implementation timeframe."

As such, seven features of the blockchain system that the ASX initially planned to include at launch will be released at a later stage, such as settlement in foreign currencies and a reporting feature for showing account balance information.

Further, the ASX cautioned that the new features that will be available to users at launch will also depend on potential risk issues and regulatory clearance.

The ASX has been exploring how to adopt distributed ledger technology since 2015, announcing last year that it will launch a blockchain-based settlement system in an effort to cut operational costs and to boost transaction efficiency.

The revised implementation timeline follows recent remarks made by the exchange's managing director and CEO Dominic Stevens that the new system will be able to save as much as $23 billion once implemented.
